If you have a special needs child esp a child with Autism please save your time and find a better equipped school that will take the time to understand them instead of putting them in isolation constantly. They write down how many times a child that doesn't speak screams or gets frustrated instead of figuring out why they are upset. The principal doesn't seem to have any kind of heart for this job.
